​​Our Boca Raton Chiropractor Offers Effective Treatment for Upper Back Injury and Pain

At Shadowood Chiropractic Center, we treat many patients suffering from upper back pain as it is a common result of the stresses of today's modern life. Upper back injuries are one of the most common ailments reported by our patients who have recently been involved in an automobile accident. The thoracic spine is not discussed nearly as much as the lower back, but with changes to our typical daily lifestyles, more people are reporting chronic upper back pain.

If you have upper back pain or an injury that is affecting your overall wellness, chiropractic care can help. The team at Shadowood Chiropractic Center in Boca Raton offers effective and comprehensive care if you are experiencing upper back pain.

Causes and Symptoms Upper Back Pain

Auto accidents can cause injury to the thoracic spine and are one of the most common causes of pain in this area of the body. Because this area of the spine is attached to the ribs, it is rather resilient and sturdy. However, years of poor posture or a physical injury can cause the spine to become misaligned. Recently, we are seeing more and more patients who are developing chronic issues in this area due to years of poor posture, computer work, and sedentary lifestyles. Working at a computer all day and leading a relatively sedentary lifestyle can contribute to problems in the upper back area. All of these factors can combine to cause chronic pain in the upper area of the back.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms you may require upper back treatment: 

  • Sharp pain
  • Tingling or numbness
  • Aching or throbbing that spreads to the neck and shoulders
  • General stiffness and discomfort in the area

Diagnosis and Treatment for Upper Back Pain Relief

Our team will administer a thorough examination as well as discuss your daily routine in order to diagnose, treat, and eliminate this problem. Muscular irritation of the upper back area can be caused by either repetitive movements or atrophy in the supporting musculature. Chiropractic care can realign the upper spine and help to relieve the pressure on the joints and cartilage that support the thoracic spine. We utilize these and other effective treatment methods:

  • Cox Adjustment Technique 
  • The Gonstead Technique
  • Activator Method
  • Motion Palpation
  • Extremity Adjustment 
  • Spinal Decompression
  • Flexion Extension
  • Thompson Technique
  • Massage Therapy
